Land Rover’s best-selling compact SUV, the Range Rover Evoque, is now even more efficient and digitally connected, with state-of-the-art Pivi infotainment, new efficient petrol and diesel mild-hybrid engines, and unique Special Editions.
Following the launch of the P300e plug-in hybrids earlier in 2020, a number of additional new engine options are now available for the Range Rover Evoque. Two updated, efficient next-generation four-cylinder Ingenium diesel engines are now available, both featuring Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology. Using a belt-driven starter motor and battery pack, vehicles fitted with MHEV technology harvest energy normally lost under deceleration, feeding back to the vehicle’s 48-volt battery. The result is a smoother stop-start operation and optimised fuel economy, giving customers a taste of the benefits of an electrified vehicle without needing to plug in and charge. Available in 165PS and 200PS outputs, these are more powerful and efficient than the engines they replace, with CO2 from 158g/km and fuel economy of up to 46.7mpg for the New Range Rover Evoque.

The Range Rover Evoque Lafayette Edition
Also available for 2020 is the new Evoque Lafayette Edition, featuring a distinctive contrast roof in Nolita Grey. Inspired by fashionable New York City neighbourhoods and based on the Evoque S, the Special Edition features a carefully curated selection of options and is available as a P300e plug-in hybrid.
The digital experience has been transformed inside with the introduction of Land Rover’s state-of-the-art Pivi infotainment. The system is ready to go as soon as it’s switched on, a separate data plan and battery mean there’s no delay. Software updates are available over-the-air via the vehicle’s embedded data connection at no cost and can even be scheduled at a time to suit. This ensures customers always have the latest maps, apps and vehicle features without having to visit a retailer. The system is enabled by a new Electrical Vehicle Architecture and is available as either standard Pivi or the more advanced Pivi Pro with built-in navigation, from S-specification.
Streaming music and media has never been simpler, with Spotify integrated directly within the infotainment menu for the first time and Bluetooth connectivity for two phones at once. There’s also wireless device charging with signal-boosting option. The new second-generation Activity Key is also available, allowing customers to unlock any door, lock or even start the vehicle, just by being nearby. Water-resistant, and shock-proof, this wearable wrist device now incorporates an LCD watch.
